Jhinge Posto - MW Version

Jhinge posto is quite a popular poppyseeds based ridgegourd curry traditionally prepared in Bengal either with a combination of potatoes or simply with prawns, my version goes just with ridgegourd which is called as Jhinge in Bengali..This flavourful dish goes for a poppyseeds and green chillies paste and cooked in mustard oil..Since ever i prepared making curries with mustard oil,i have completely got hooked to this flavourful oil and i could stop myself getting them from India..I prepared this easy breezy posto through microwave oven and this posto get ready very much quickly and we enjoyed having it with  rice..Hope you guys would have enjoyed my 7 days of microwave cooking, this is our last day of  blogging marathon, do check my other buddies running this 8th edition with me here..


2cups Ridgegourd pieces (diced)
1/2tsp Mustard seeds
2nos Green chillies (chopped)
2tbsp Poppyseeds
1/2tsp Turmeric powder
Mustard oil
Salt

Take enough mustard oil and mustard seeds in a microwave safe bowl,cook in high power for 2 minutes, add now the diced ridge gourd pieces,turmeric powder and salt,cook everything in high for 3 minutes, meanwhile grind the poppyseeds and green chillies as fine paste, add this grounded paste to hald cooked ridgegourd pieces,give a stir and cook for 5minutes(stir twice in between) until they get well cooked..

Serve hot as side dish with rice or rotis..
